For those interested in Judea during the period of the Jewish rebellion and the destruction of the temple (67-70), this book is a must-read. Harry Freedman's grasp on the period's political climate, religious factions, and everyday life for both Romans and Jews is simply amazing. He weaves these facts into a narrative that really puts the reader in the scene. In addition, Freedman helps the reader understand both the diversity of ancient Judea as well as the diversity within Judaism in that era. ...more

My latest book, published by Bloomsbury, is KABBALAH: SECRECY, SCANDAL AND THE SOUL. It tells the story of Kabbalah, from its earliest origins until the present day. We trace Kabbalah's development, from the second century visionaries who visited the divine realms and brought back tales of their glories and splendours, through the unexpected arrival of a book in Spain that appeared to have lain ...more
